Tenant Services

Tenant Councils

The Senior Tenant Council is composed of residents in each high-rise apartment building – Curry/Schell Apartments, Ostrow Apartments, Schmid Towers, and Friendship Apartments.

Officers are elected yearly under guidelines set forth by the Department of Housing and Urban Development. The primary purpose for electing Tenant Councils is to give residents an opportunity to explain their needs and points of view to the manager of the building in order to have a part in decisions and policy making.

Tenant Councils also plan and promote activities that enhance the health and welfare, educational opportunities and recreational activities available to each buildings residents.

For more information on these councils, their members, or officers,  contact Cherie Kinem, HACE Resident Initiatives Coordinator, at 452-2425

Resident Advisory Board

The Resident Advisory Board is comprised of elected officers from each of the Family Development and High-rise Tenant Councils.

These include Lake City, Ostrow Apartments, Erie Heights, Friendship Apartments, Harbor Homes, Harbor Homes Annex, John E. Horan Garden Apartments, Pineview, Agnes R. Priscaro Apartments, Schmid Towers, Section 8, and Section 8 Family Self Sufficiency.

When there is no functioning Tenant Council, community representatives from the family developments or high-rise buildings are asked to serve on the Resident Advisory Board. Members of the Resident Advisory Board meet regularly with Authority staff to provide input on policy matters, Capital Fund expenditures, and new program development.
